Local Journalist Wins Award

Stowmarket-based freelance journalist Felicity Landon has won a major international award for her work in the maritime, transport and logistics press.

Felicity, a maritime specialist, was named Innovation Journalist of the Year 2017 at the Seahorse Club Awards for an article examining blockchain technology published in Port Strategy magazine.

The article, entitled The Digital Handover, considered how blockchain technology could turn accepted supply chain practice on its head. As well as looking at the opportunities, such as eliminating fraud, authenticating certificates, enhancing process flows, sharing data for collaborative planning and providing full traceability of products, the article reported on industry concerns, including security questions, software issues and the ‘what could possibly go wrong?’ attitude.

The Seahorse Club is a networking group for public relations, marketing, advertising and journalism professionals working within the freight, passenger, shipping and logistics sectors.

This year’s Seahorse Club Awards, presented in London, attracted more than 250 entries from journalists around the world. The awards recognise excellence in news and feature writing for journalists specialising in the maritime, transport and supply chain industries.

Felicity Landon was presented with her award by Nikos Spath, head of media and public relations at the international classification society DNV GL.
